Blind Society is a hardcore punk outfit from the shores of New Jersey. Dedicated to giving the kids something to identify with besides the pop-punk pap that dominates radio, the band attacks with greater fury and better focus on Contrary to Popular Belief than Our Future Is Looking Bleak, the 2000 debut. After a menacing instrumental introduction, "Set Apart" drops into gear, accelerating into a plea for understanding in the often-elitist hardcore scene. From there, guitarist Dan, drummer Mike, and bassist Topher slow the tempo only when occasional snatches of melody appear ("Spock Rock"; the beginning of "Fine Line"), offsetting the intersecting chants of Chris and Blaise's dueling vocal attack. Blind Society makes a slight misstep with the heavy-handed "Gulf War Syndrome"; while political and social commentary is a large part of what makes hardcore important, summing up governmental actions as "all a bunch of bullsh*t lies" isn't an effective statement. Fortunately, Blind Society doesn't waste any more of the album's 29 minutes, railing at authority, the rich, and propaganda over 16 rage- and speed-filled songs. Best include "My Damage," which is filled with more adolescent rage in its 1:39 than Linkin Park's entire oeuvre. ~ Johnny Loftus
